Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 4

Good day from a sunny Holland!
Ellie Knol here today.

I decided to make backgrounds with Minx Shimmering Inks, on all types of paper.
It is really easy, and relaxing to do while enjoying the sun…


I’ve been on vacation for a week… (more to come)
and did take some crafty stash with me, of course.

On an old table: using a bucket of water and paper, and of course … Minx,
I created a whole bunch of backgrounds.

I did not need a heattool to dry them, the sun did the drying for me.


Today I show you what I’ve made with the backgrounds that started as just plain old white paper.

For more information please see the
Snapguide I created ..
Check out How to Make Shimmery Backgrounds With Minx by Art Anthology on Snapguide.//

I hope that I have inspired you to create something pretty today and play even when you’re on vacation. You can add the final touches when back at home. 

Next time I’ll show the ones that had some white heat embossing, gesso and acrylic paint on it before coloring with Minx. 

 Have a play and show it to us on our Facebook group Art Anthology’s Adventures in Art !

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
SEE you next time!
